Fire Safety Week

This week we have talked about the importance of fire safety.  Today, the Pecatonica Fire Department and Sparky came to our school.   We were SUPER excited to shoot the fire hose!  Please make sure to talk as a family about your exit plan and meeting place if there was ever a fire in your home.

Wonderful Tradition

Every year Mrs. Gocken creates a giant chalk art whale for us. Each of us help to color the whale.  When we are done we took some pictures of us being shot out of the whale's spout.

This week we read the book How To Make An Apple Pie and Travel the World.

This is an adorable story about a girl who wanted to make an apple pie, but the market was closed.  So she had to travel around the world to gather all the ingredients.  

This week we continued to focus on determining the setting of a story. This story helped us understand that the setting of a story can change.

We also tuned into some interesting vocabulary words.  (ingredients, churn, spoil, harvest, and orchard.)

Apples took over our math time as well this week.

At the guided math table, we had mystery bags.  Each bad had a different number of apples inside.  We had to count the number of apples, record the digit, write the number word, and draw the correct amount.

We played fill the apple basket for one of our math rotation games. With a partner we would roll two dice and add the numbers up. Then, we would put that number of apples into our basket.  The partner to fill their basket first one! 

We had a ton of fun make our own personal apple turn overs!  YUMMY! Check out each of us with our yummy creations.
